I foolishly allowed an active x program to run from a dubious website, and now i,ve got a message in the toolbar saying 'System Alert ! System has detected active spyware applications.' I've run Norton Internet 07, Windows defender,and microsoft's malicious software removal tool but they can't find anything wrong. When i click on the System Alert icon it takes me to Spydawn website saying i have to purchase their software to resolve this issue. Is this a con to get me to puchase, and how do i get rid of it ? System restore is unable to fix this !
Woodchip, There was nothing in the startup tab although there was an active x in the add/remove but when i tried to remove it, it just said to reboot and try again. Problem solved now, but thanks anyway.
